Travel to Botswana Africa for Makgadikgadi Pans and Mokolodi Nature Reserve
Botswana, a country located in southern Africa, is a land of exotic wildlife, deserts, lush savannahs, and wetlands. Its official name is the Republic of Botswana, and it is bordered by South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Zambia. The official language is English. However, Setswana is also spoken in many spots. The official currency is the Pula.
Its capital city is Gaborone, a mix of the original village dwellings along with newer and more modern ones. It features an interesting display of traditional African and European artworks at its National Museum & Art Gallery.
The Mokolodi Nature Reserve has an enormous animal population that includes more than 300 species of birds, as well as hyenas, giraffes, jackals, leopards, cheetahs, hippos, warthogs, zebras, elephants, baboons and more. The reserve operates as a research facility, breeding exotic species.
The Makgadikgadi Pans features the largest salt pans on earth. In fact, the three salt pans here pose an interesting landscape since they are the remains of a vast lake. In the winter, they remain dry and virtually unvisited. During the annual rainy season, temporary lakes of water and fringes of verdant green growth arrive along with a bevy of exotic animals in search of the algae and tiny crustaceans that arrive along with the water.
